Styling with lights – How lighting helps accentuate interior decor

The importance of lighting cannot be emphasized enough. The right lighting accentuates the mood, ambience and aesthetic ambience of a living space, making it the most important element in interior design. It has become imperative for us to use lighting in a functional and creative manner that helps achieve a fine balance in setting up a stylish and comfortable interior.

Lighting is a fundamental element of interior design. With a variety of different lighting techniques, illusion of space can also be created - colour, placement, and the use of appropriate lighting fixtures are just some of the aspects that can bring about a definite change in the mood and ambience. Add to this, the use of accent lighting to accentuate objects within the room that brings about a dramatic change in and helps achieve the best effect.

Laying emphasis on the aspect of lighting as a design tool, Ellen Søhoel, Founder, XBD Collective, multi-disciplined design firm that offers architectural, interior and landscape design services across all sectors, commented, “Lighting plays an integral role in boundlessly transforming any interior space or building by creating the wow-factor, enhancing the illusion of space and to set a mood. XBD Collective explores on a daily basis the power of detailed lighting design in all of our Architectural & Interior Design projects, predominantly focusing on balancing the natural & artificial lighting effects. The power of lighting design is never to be underestimated.”
